A Meager Weigh-in Victory

I lost half a pound this week. I know I should be happy that I lost any weight at all, but I worked so hard this week that I had really been hoping for a better loss than just half a pound.
I’m going to give up coffee this week. Actually, I will still have one coffee a day, but I won’t have the other three or four coffees I would normally have. I’m still having the one coffee a day in order to, hopefully, prevent the headaches I usually get when I give up caffeine. I don’t have any diet sodas in the house so there isn’t anything else for me to replace the caffeine from the coffees with during the week. I just want to see whether or not, if I still drink the right amount of fluids while not drinking any coffee, it will have any effect on my weight loss.
I am still unable to get on-line. My husband is posting my posts for me by cutting and pasting while he is on his lunch break at work. I am still unable to get to my e-mail and do the random number generator to choose the winner of the Sigg water bottle, but it won’t take more than a week before things are back up and running and I will be able to announce the winner. Thanks for being so patient with me!


  1. Miss you! Hope your back online soon :)

  2. Cutting out the caffeine should make you feel better, if nothing else, but it may very well effect the scale, even if you drink it plain.

    Congratulations on your loss this week! Your body is getting closer to its' happy weight, so losing more slowly may become the norm. But that's half a pound you don't have to lose next week, regardless :)

    Keep up the great, inspiring work!

  3. Don't let a loss every discourage you. Half a pound is still half a pound. Congratulations for that.

  4. How frustrating to not be able to get online! Hope everything's working again soon.

    Celebrate your 1/2 pound loss, even though you were hoping for more. You'll probably have a week when you lose more than you thought to make up for it.


Sorry about the word verification. I turned it off and started getting tons of SPAM, so I had to turn it back on again.
